Spotlight & Guest Post - The End of Athens by Anthony Karakai

The End of Athens
by Anthony Karakai

Genre: Dystopian Thriller/Urban Fantasy

The End of Athens


In the year 2091, humans have lost the ability to dream. After decades of financial and social depression, dreams and aspirations have become a recessive gene—an impossibility of the modern mind. 

Greece is one of the worst social and economic disaster zones, and all hope of a better future has been lost. One young man, Nikos, discovers that he is not like everybody else—there is something different about him.

Believing that he may be going crazy, he soon discovers that he is the only person in Greece who has inherited the ability to dream. Time is running out as the government continues its tirade of corruption and suppression against the people, and Nikos must find a way to teach others how to dream so that once more society can free itself from the shackles of mental slavery.

The setting for The End of Athens, takes place all around Greece. I have been there many times over the past 10 years, and have found that it is a magical, beautiful and majestic country. For those who haven't had the chance to visit just yet, here are some images of Greece which have inspired The End of Athens.
